Fantastic case Allan, well done! PM sent !!!

You've got a lot of nice eyepieces there Andrew. I'm sure you put a fair bit of thought into buying them.

I did buy and sell a fair bit early on until I knew what I wanted but I've only ever bought second so never lost a lot of money,the only exception being the TV 55 plossl that one has been impossible to buy used,like them all but there's something special about the docter ,barlowed it the other night on the moon before the clouds rolled in ,amazing

I think I've settled with the following EPs for my 8-inch f12.4 scope:
- 55mm R.O. Konig XL
- 27mm Panoptic
- 15mm Vixen NLV
- 10mm Pentax XW (might replace with a 10mm Vixen NLV as I don't need the extra FOV due to using a driven mount).

Might add the following to complete the stable:
- 8.5mm Pentax XF
- 17.5mm Morpheus
- 26mm Nagler T5 (to replace the 27mm Pan)

Culled mine last year so that I'm down to the vixen LVWs - 5, 8,13,22 and 42 mm, and the 50mm LV.

Of these my favourites are the 50 and 13, followed by the 8mm.

Hi All

My eyepieces as they are now. My favourite is the Orion Stratus, 17mm.

The Celestron Zoom is new (for Christmas) and hasn't really been out yet.

Enjoy

Philip

My collection is getting to where I want it...actually think I have it now

ES 68's 20-40. Baader Morpheus 14 and 9 with ES 2" 2X Focal Extender. The Baader's with Barlow are a perfect match for the 68's, after trying out more than a few others. Perfect on weight, views and price.

The others are 65mm Rusell Optics Plossl and a GSO 2x barlow lens on an 80mm extension tube giving roughly 2.5x and Baader Fringe Killer and Moon and Skyglow filter.

Matt this is a near perfect set to me for what it's worth,i am not a fan of the LVW's ,thought the Denk 21 or the Pentax Xw 20 IMO would make it unbeatable

There has been a little modification to the setup with the addition of a Delos 14mm and a Nagler 31mm. So no more buying for a few days !!!
The Prostar 30 is for public outreach events so that sticky fingers won't get near the Nagler 31.... I found the Denk21 and LVW22 to be very very close indeed,
I will keep the LVW22 for the moment instead of the D21
